Victoria was a very pretty girl, but with three sisters even prettier than she, Victoria had developed a bit of a complex about her looks. So when attractive Alexander van Schuylen made it clear he liked her, she really didn’t expect much more from him.
How could she, when he was so impressed with her sisters’ beauty? But if his feelings for Victoria actually did run deep, she could be in danger of losing him - entirely through her own fault.

Another Victory for Betty Neels
I am familiar with the misunderstandings that happens between the couple concerned, that is why I enjoy the familiar but different stories by Betty Neels. I prefer Julia Barry or Ann Cass as narrator, they are more in keeping with the, happy , innocent young lady in the story, a personal opinion of course!
Betty Neels educates as she unfolds her tale. You can see real places, roads, farms Inns canals mountains, etc., As the tale unfolds. I love the 'young girl in distress, being rescued 'by modern knight!!' Format, The love of animals and tenderness toward children . I love the way food is described and finish each chapter wanting to carry on reading the next.
>I listen at bedtime, so to me the happy ever after is just right to go to sleep to. An older listener, I do wish there was more Audible choice - poor sight makes reading books impossible, I have the complete collection of Betty Neels Books, but only a handful of Audible ! More Audible by this Author please!

I usually really enjoy Betty Neels audiobooks but the narrator of this made the male lead sound like an old man, it was really difficult to listen to the story and imagine the hero as s 36 year old man he sounded about 90.
